As of Wednesday July 28, 2021: Intensive care bed occupancy rates are increasing in most regions, with a very strong acceleration in overseas territories. The rate has doubled in Martinique, where intensive care services are now fully saturated. Guadeloupe and Réunion are also seeing rapid growth in their business and could soon become fully saturated like Guyana, which hasn’t been vacant for more than a month. Data on intensive care occupancy for Mayotte is still not provided.
Rate increases in the south of France
The intensive care business jumped this week in regions of southern France (Corsica, PACA, Occitanie and Nouvelle-Aquitaine), as well as Auvergne-Rhne-Alpes and Brittany. Despite this increase, all metropolitan areas are still below the maximum alert limit.

1. The thresholds in the graph have been revised to adopt the new alert levels established by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health: Maximum Alert (30%) and Health Emergency (60%).
2. Due to the time lag between the time of infection and admission to the ICU (about two weeks), Wednesday’s data actually reflects the pandemic situation two to three weeks earlier.
